New GFI MailEssentials with additional anti-spam engine
A new version of the leading anti-spam and anti-phishing software GFI MailEssentials has been released, GFI, an international developer of quality software at unbeatable prices, announced today. Version 14 ships with an additional anti-spam engine that will improve spam capture rates out of the box with minimal configuration. GFI MailEssentials 14 also features a dashboard and reporting functionality.
With over 60 awards to its name, 80,000 satisfied customers, GFI MailEssentials is an anti-spam filter that captures well over 98% of spam with a very low rate of false positives. GFI MailEssentials can detect and block phishing emails as well as add email management tools to the mail server: disclaimers, mail monitoring, Internet mail reporting, list server, server-based auto replies and POP3 downloading. It also ships at a price that is 35% cheaper than any of GFI’s competitors.
The latest version, GFI MailEssentials 14, ships with SpamRazer, an additional anti-spam engine that provides a second layer of protection and highly effective filtering out-of-the-box. It has been designed to be very simple to use and because it is frequently updated, the latest spam attacks such as NDR spam, CNN spam, MSNBC spam and many more are caught without the need to tweak or train the product.
With SpamRazer filtering, IP reputation filtering, Bayesian and other advanced anti-spam technology modules, an ultra high capture rate is obtained as well as a market-leading low rate of false positives thereby ensuring that good and important emails are not classified as spam. To further improve the overall performance of the Microsoft Exchange Server where GFI MailEssentials is installed, Version 14 hooks into the Exchange Server at the SMTP protocol level. This means that Exchange will not have to download every single email before GFI MailEssentials can reject it as spam. This will save on bandwidth and also boost CPU performance.
Two other new features in GFI MailEssentials 14 include a dashboard to give administrators a visual snapshot of their mail flow and the product’s status. In terms of reporting, GFI MailEssentials 14 allows users (always at the administrator’s discretion) to receive a daily report showing how much email was received for that user and how much of it was caught as spam. The email report will list the emails caught as spam.
